Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Gothic Revival Houses in the Globe

The On the Block column in today’s Boston Globe Magazine featured one of my favorite house styles – the Gothic Revival.  The three houses in the magazine are extraordinary.  Want to see inside?

The Gothic Revival architectural style was popular in the US from 1830 to 1875.   The style featured steep gables, often with decorative trim, and motifs that included trefoils, quatrefoils and Tudor arches.

The houses in today’s paper are every bit as exquisite inside as out.  I had already fallen in love with the house at 20 Chestnut Street in Taunton after it turned up in a “serendipity search” in MLS.  7 High Street in Westborough and 19 Irving Street in New Bedford are new to me – though I’m going to search through my bookshelves since the Globe reports that Irving has been on the cover of two books on architecture.

Here are the Gothic Revival houses from the Globe in all their glory.  Click on the small photo for a photo showcase with interior views and more information.
